Green Smoothie ~ Peach Banana

My first green smoothie ever, and I'm hooked. Even if you hate spinach, embrace your inner Popeye and try this. . . . You'll never taste the leafies in this. If you can't get past that gorgeous good-for-you-green color (or, perhaps, you want someone else to enjoy this smoothie without asking too many questions about the contents), pop a straw into a travel mug and enjoy on the sly.

Green Smoothie ~ Peach Banana

Yield: Approx. two 16-ounce servings
  •  1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened orange juice
  • 1 peach, pitted but not peeled, chopped
  • 1 frozen banana, broken into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons flaxmeal
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach (about 2 cups), roughly chopped
Place in blender in above order; process until smooth. If you'd like, you can add a few ice cubes.

Note: If you want to save part of the batch for later, just stick it in the fridge or freezer and toss it into the blender (or a shaker cup) when you're ready to enjoy.
